How do I use this in my classroom?
This is a great bulletin board! As a class we discuss opinion writing. Students then choose whether they would rather be a penguin or a polar bear. Students use the included spider web planning page to plan their ideas for reasons why. Then I hand out the included differentiated writing pages. Blank with primary lines for on and above grade level students, and the included prompt for below grade level students. I then take head shot photos of each student and print the included black and white copies of penguins and polar bears. Students color their bodies, then we post their finished writing and adorable photo and body.
